7:02 am
u.s. and russia showing no sign of thawing. president trump does appear to be warming when it comes to several major issues he railed against during the campaign. our team is covering all of this this morning. we'll start with nbc's kristen welker at the white house. hi, kristen. good morning. >> savannah, good morning to you. today president trump heads to mar-a-lago to march the easter weekend. it comes after high stakes meetings here in washington and in moscow. both sides saying the relations between the u.s. and russia are at an all-time low, but this morning mr. trump striking a note of optimism tweeting "things will work out fine between the u.s.a. and russia. did he right time everyone will come to their senses, and there will be lasting peace." right now the relationship deteriorating. >> reporter: this morning president trump turning up the heat on russia unleashing a stunning accusation wednesday. russia likely knew about syria's chemical weapons attack. >> i would like to think that they didn't know, but certainly they could have. they were there. >> reporter: the strong words came during a joint press
7:03 am
conference with nato secretary general in which mr. trump who was once criticized for being too praise-worthy of president putin offered this stark assessment. >> right now we're not getting along with russia at all. we may be at an all-time low in terms of relationship with russia. >> reporter: the white house wants russia to pressure assad to stop using chemical weapons. like the attack last week that resulted in a u.s. missile strike on a syrian air base. >> young children dying. babies dying. fathers holding children in their arms that were dead, dead children. there can't be a worse sight, and it shouldn't be allowed. that's a butcher. that's a butcher. >> reporter: the president's tough talk echoed 5,000 miles away in moscow by his secretary of state. rex tillerson meeting with president putin and his russian counterpart, saying for the first time the u.s. might consider war crimes charges against syria's president.
7:04 am
one way to force him out of office. >> it is possible that the threshold necessary to charge individuals, bashir al assad may be achieved. >> reporter: but does russia have the upper hand in its relationship with the u.s.? for the first time in decades, the answer might be yes. western diplomats at the g-7 summit failing to agree on a british proposal for sanctions against russia in the wake of syria's chemical attack. then at the u.n. security council russia blocking a proposed resolution condemning the attack. >> the draft resolution has not been adopted. >> reporter: add to that russian foreign minister sergei lavrov dismissing the u.s. position that assad is so blame for the chemical warfare. instead, calling on the u.n. to launch an independent investigation. the secretary of state ak knowledging the tensions are an issue. >> the world's two foremost nuclear powers cannot have this kind of relationship. >> and in a new interview this
7:05 am
morning syria's president is again resisting the idea that they're behind the chemical weapons attack saying the army gave up all chemical weapons. assad, adding, reports of an alleged chemical attack are 100% fabrication. this after the secretary of state said the united states has high confidence syria is behind the attack. matt, savannah. >> kristen welker starting us off at the white house. thank you. the president's hardened view on russia isn't his only notable shift. on wednesday we also saw him reversing his stances on some other key issues that he took during the campaign, including china and nato. nbc's ch correspondent halle jackson has more on that story. halle, good morning to you. >> hi, matt. good morning. and you're right. president trump's cooler toward russia warmer towards china and towards nato citing their fight against terror. on the economic front he is moving towards the middle. for him a series of significant shifts in just the last day. >> reporter: from president trump a flurry of flip-flops.
7:06 am
>> here's the problem with nato. it's obsolete. >> i said it was obsolete. it's no longer obsolete. >> reporter: that rhetorical reversal on nato just one of several in the past 24 hours. as the president backs off key campaign promises. remember this one on china? >> we are going to label china a currency manipulator. >> reporter: again and again blasting beijing. as recently as ten days ago president trump calling china the world champion of currency manipulati manipulation. now he tells the "wall street journal" they're not currency manipulators. changing his mind, he says, because they've stopped doing it and because he wants china's help dealing with north korea. that's not his only about-face. in the same interview the president says he likes and respects the head of the fed, janet yellen. last fall his descriptions sounded different. >> i think she's very political, and to a certain extent i think
7:07 am
she should be ashamed of herself. >> reporter: as a candidate donald trump blasted the u.s. export-import bank. a frequent foil for conservatives who label it croy capitalism. that was then. in a move that may be seen as a shift towards the center, president trump calls it a very good thing, suggesting it might help small businesses. a senior administration official downplayed the u-turns telling nbc news the president hasn't strayed from the big principles of his campaign, like jobs and national security, adding he has always said he wants to keep all his options on the table. on the international front, he still is keeping one option open when it comes to the kremlin. even though his administration's clearly cooler towards moscow now, the president has been consistent. he wants to keep the door open just in case. >> be a fantastic thing if we got along with putin and if we got along with russia, and that could happen, and it may not happen. it may be just the opposite. >> the president argues he is still keeping his promises one by one, but his most recent
7:08 am
economic declarations, matt and savannah, could be seen as a sign of the rising influence of advisors like gary cohen here in the west wing as opposed to, say, his chief strategist steve bannon. back to you. >> all right. halle jackson at the white house. thanks very much. >> nicole wallace is with us now. hi, nicole. good morning to you. nicolle wall now, good morning to you. all presidents learn on the job and you have certainly been in the white house, you know that to be true. is that what we're seeing here, kind of a realtime learning about some of these positions? that is why it's changing? is it a true change of heart? good, bad, different? >> we are watching the education of a president. and what is different is that this normally happens during the campaign. and presidents of both parties, especially ones that didn't come from the united states senate, where they have grappled with some of the important policy issues, you covered george w. bush, conde rice, we are watching a president become educated about issues he railed against but didn't know anything about as a candidate. >> is it partly that and is it partly this is the reputation of
7:09 am
donald trump as a deal maker? you need a safe and secure europe, so nato's not obsolete. you need china's help with north korea, so china's manipulator. >> that's part of it. and it's also a sign, we talk about the struggle as being between the new yorkers and the keepers of the trump plain. i think it is more about his impulses toward the pragmatism you describe. and the reality, you can't do much on the world stage without a strong nato. >> is there also a little part of this softening toward china where he's playing china against russia and saying, hey, vladimir putin, take a look at me and my new friend, the president of china. >> absolutely. and back to the education point, he now, i think, has a better understanding of the grave threat posed by north korea. and he needs china. >> we talked about it and hallie said the bannon wing in the white house and the west-wing democrats, as steve bannon likes to call them, people like ivanka
7:10 am
trump and jared kushner, people with a more centrist position. i mean, in terms of the politics of it, are trump voters going to be disappointing if suddenly he's not saying, china, you're ripping us off, for example? >> i don't think so. i think the trump voters were so tapped into his strengths and weaknesses and understand the whole composite. i'll be out talking to them next week, but i'm going to be very surprised if they are disappointing in the pivots on foreign policy. they voted for him on jobs. as long as he stays on track, we have not heard him talk about that much, but as long as he returns to the central issue, i think his core voters will be just fine. >> nicolle wallace, thank you very much. we just mentioned north korea, there's now growing fear the country could soon conduct its sixth nuclear test despite stark warnings from the united states. new satellite imaging shows increased activity at north korea's main nuclear testing site. it comes as the country prepares to celebrate the birthday of the nation's founder, kim il-song,
7:11 am
the grandfather of kim jong-un. north korea is known to mark significant anniversaries and celebrations with displays of military force. also this morning, united is facing new problems over that passenger who was dragged off a flight earlier this week. he appears set to take legal action with his family and his attorneys, planning to hold a news conference later today. tom costello covers aviation for us and has been following this all week long. tom, good morning, bring us up to speed. >> reporter: united airlines says it will compensate everybody that was on the flight on sunday for witnessing this hybrid police security force ripping dr. dao out of his seat and dragging him down the aisle. and now this case may be about to take a major turn. today attorneys for dr. david dao appear to be poised to take legal action. >> my god, what are you doing? >> reporter: for the first time later this morning we expect to hear from both attorneys and the family member of dr. dao's, four
7:12 am
days after airport security dragged him from a flight bloodied and dazed. >> oh, my god, look at what you did to him! >> reporter: simply for refusing to give up his seat so united's crew members could board. late wednesday, the chicago department of aviation put two more security officers on leave, which means all three officers involved are now suspended as part of the department's ongoing review. >> no, i'm not going. i am not going. >> reporter: hours earlier, lawyers for dr. dao filed an emergency court petition, naming united airlines and the city of chicago to preserve what could be key pieces of evidence, surry r say lance video, surveillance video, incident reports, protocol and the personnel files of the police. on board sunday's flight, history teacher jason pao, so upset by what he saw, he pulled his students off the plane. >> what they did is totally opposite of what needs to
7:13 am
happen. it was really, frankly, unbelievable. >> reporter: three rows behind dr. dao, anthony johnson shot this cell phone video. >> as it was happening, i couldn't believe it. it took me a while to comprehend what i just saw. >> i have to go home. i have to go home. >> reporter: if united airlines was hoping its p.r. nightmare would fade away, it may be in for another day of bad headlines. united has apologized now to dr. dao and to all of the passengers on board. also, promising the result of an internal investigation by the end of the month. and meanwhile, as you know, their stock has suffered losing hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of the past few days. guys, back to you. >> tom costello, thanks very much. here's disturbing video from sacramento, california. it's landed an officer there under investigation. it shows him beating a pedestrian. and what did he stop him for? jaywalking. here's nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer. >> this is right here -- >> reporter: stopped for
7:14 am
jaywalking, the brutal takedown and beating of a pedestrian at the hands of a sacramento police officer was caught on camera by a woman driving by. >> hey! hey! why are you doing it like that? >> reporter: pummeled by more than a dozen punches, this morning sacramento police call the officer's smackdown disturbing and unacceptable. >> he's breaking his arm. >> reporter: police launching a criminal investigation into one of their own. >> if she didn't take that video, i would probably be a dead man walking right now. >> reporter: he says it went down as he was walking home. >> my hands were prettity banged up, my face. they got me in the throat, punched me in the stomach, my ribs. i just thank god i'm still alive. >> reporter: quickly releasing dash cam video -- >> get down on the ground now. get down. >> reporter: police say the standoff escalates when cain refuses orders to stop walking and take off his jacket. >> get down on the ground now.
7:15 am
>> reporter: moments later, the officer's fists fly. >> we don't condone this behavior with any of our officers. we hold ourself to a higher standard. >> these things are happening on a regular basis. and we don't always get to know when it's happening because there's not always a witness videotaping it and making it public. >> reporter: with cain not facing any charges, the officer is off the force and not commenting. but some say this video already speaks volumes. for today, miguel almaguer, nbc news, los angeles. we should tell you that along with the criminal investigation, the sacramento police department also launching an internal affairs probe to the officer's conduct. he'll remain on paid administrative leave pending the results of that investigation. and now back to this video we showed at the top of the show, a frightening close call caught on surveillance camera. a 4-year-old girl nearly shot. this happened inside an arizona barbershop. and here you can see her taking
7:16 am
a seat by the front window when moments later gunfire erupts in the parking lot. the bullets just miss the girl by an inch or two. she was hit by glass and treated for minor injuries. police say the suspects were apparently aiming at the tattoo parlor next door following a very sbal dispute. two men have been arrested and face a list of charges. >> that's so horrifying. >> horrifying and thank goodness she's okay. al is off, dylan is here with a check of the forecast. >> it's a pretty nice forecast for most of the country. yesterday we did see some pretty nasty storms move through kansas. look at this thunderstorm that stalled out over hayes, kansas, just dumped so much hail. it's starting to cover the streets there. cars were stuck in some of the flooding because the rain was passing over the same area over and over again for a very extended period of time. cars there trying to drive through the flooding, which you probably shouldn't do. and there's the hail continuing to pile up, and even the hail landing in some of the puddles. so we are going to see some storms today, especially a
7:17 am
little farther south of the kansas area, down to southwestern texas. you can see the cloud-to-ground lightning there and heavy pockets of rain, but nothing too severe today. we could see the storms continue to move eastward throughout the day into tomorrow. but really, as we go into the upcoming weekend, that's when we're going to see more widespread severe storms possible, especially on saturday across parts of the midwest. basically extending from iowa right down to texas where we could see larger hail and damaging winds. of course, the rain that comes with it, too. we could see as much as two to three inches of rain near southwestern oklahoma. that could lead to some brief flash flooding again if it happens in the same area like we just saw in that video. so heavy rain possible today. mountain snow out west. and also very windy conditions in the southwest. that's a look at
7:18 am
good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. rain is off and on this morning and we are seeing some of that rain just movie ining through s jose and pushing off towards the east. we have downpours in the south county area and towards the north and east rain moving closer to pleasanton and liver mo mortar. and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you. coming up, they call it the winter white house. how much are president trump's visits to mar-a-lago costing

7:32 am
personal gain. when barack obama was president, donald trump had harsh words about his travel trips. >> what's better than the white house? why these vacations? you're in the white house, there's so much work to be done. >> reporter: but now mr. trump's traveling often to mar-a-lago, his glitzcy, sprawling, florida estate. also a private club owned by the family business. seven trips since he took office including another one this week. more than half of the weekends. >> i have the southern white house in florida. we get a lot of work done, not a lot of rest at the south white house, a lot of work. >> reporter: who's who of the administration, policy consultants and members of congress, many flown down at taxpayer expense and staying in high-priced rooms in mar-a-lago. plus foreign officials like china's president xi jinping. last week he stayed overnight in a nearby resort and the japanese

prime minister shinzo abe and robert kraft who traveled on air force one and marine one. how unprecedented is this? >> i can't think of anything like this that we have seen at any time in the modern era. >> reporter: steve soon scooner says what is so different that unlike president busch's trips or president obama's trips to martha's vineyard, he's visiting a privately owned family business to mingle with club owners where he can pay money just to join. >> the president should have invested in properties to begin with. he shouldn't be traveling there on a regular basis on the public's dime and driving business to his own commercial interest. >> reporter: shinzo abe's trip was a personal gift from the president himself and the plan is to do so for other foreign officials. for transportation, secret service protection, military support and the coast guard are all paid for with taxpayers'
7:34 am
money. the white house won't say exactly how much, but the government accountability office estimated that a weekend trip in 2013 by president obama to chicago and south florida cost about $3.6 million. the cost for air force one alone, $142,000 an hour. >> this is where he goes to see his family, he brings people down there. this is part of being president. >> reporter: but critics including a conservative budget watchdog group say the frequent trips cost too much. >> there's room for improvement. and the president should do well to figure out ways to save money for the taxpayer in the white house operations. and moving them around. >> reporter: every time the president visits, how much does it cost your department? >> it's about $60,000 a day. >> reporter: palm beach county sheriff rick bradshaw says that added up to $2 million since the inauguration. >> we can sustain this a while longer. if it goes many more months, then we have to make decisions on talking with the county to
7:35 am
get contingency funds. >> reporter: in the eight years of his presidency, barack obama's total costs were at least $97 million. at the current rate, the cost of president trump's travel could well exceed that. but what all this really adds up to, ethics watchdogs say, is a president spending lots of taxpayer money to conduct presidential business while promoting his family's business at the same time. >> this is a privately-owned club. and for all intents and purposes, was just another gulf property in florida before that almost now is something that americans immediately recognize, imagine what you would have to pay to get that kind of brand recognition. that's extraordinary. >> reporter: at the request of senate democrats, the gal will review the mar-a-lago costs to find out if they are fair and reasonable. officials here in palm beach and new york where trump tower are located, when asked when they will be reimbursed, they have not officially heard back. and one local county commissioner is looking into the possibility of extra taxes on

7:50 am
quickly became a tourist attraction and social media sensation representing the lack of gender equality in the workplace. in a press conference on wednesday, he requested the statue not be destroyed but moved to a different location. social media users are seeing both sides of the dispute. one tweet says, the fearless girl statue is already a symbol of strong women struggles. she's offended a man just by getting more attention than him. allen writes, 90% of fearless girl photos also include the bull. i can see the moral rights infringement argument. even new york city mayor bill de blasio weighed in online tweeting, we wouldn't move the charging bull statue if it offended someone. the fearless girl is staying put. the lawyers have filed a lawsuit saying they have hopes the dispute can be resolved ammicbly. guys? >> okay. i think he's right, it absolutely changes the meaning of his statue, because she looks like she's standing up to something menacing. i don't think he has a legal leg to stand on. >> it's like fearless girl,
7:51 am
charging bull and lame lawsuit. however, i do agree that, you know, he feels like they've changed the meaning. asking it to be moved is a reasonable request, but i don't know he has a legal leg to stand on. what do you think, dylan? >> since the girl is there, i think it is a great idea, but do see how it changes what the bull represented. >> on the other hand, that's art. you put something out into the public arena, it's always going to be subject to somebody's interpretation. >> yeah. >> so if you put a painting next to the mona lisa and the painting's going -- would the artist of the mona lisa say, what the heck? >> let's move that one. sheinelle, thank you. just ahead, we'll introduce you to a remarkable woman using her love of cooking to bring the community together.

my heart. >> calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> during the presidential campaign, american-born muslim amanda saab, felt the rhetoric towards muslims had become increasingly uncomfortable. >> i did cry. i was like, oh, my gosh, i can't believe this is happening. i was feeling, like, i needed to do something because i was kind of feeling helpless while watching the news. and all of the things that were being said about muslims and american-muslims, and i wanted to create my own platform to share my experiences. hello! >> reporter: saab and her husband, hussein, took a bold step and opened up their home to total strangers through social media and created a movement, dinner with your muslim neighbor. >> i love cooking. like, there's no better way, i think, to show and welcome somebody into your home than by breaking bread and sharing a
8:22 am
meal. >> reporter: their guests are from diverse backgrounds. >> reaching out to our black brothers and sisters to make sure they are represented, our christian brothers and sisters, our jewish brothers and sisters, someone from the lgbtq community, just so we have the opportunity to hear their experiences. and we can share and learn from one another. >> reporter: the meal starts with a prayer. >> we always start with a prayer. and it is a traditional muslim prayer. but i think it also helps normalize american-muslims, many people in their faith traditions say a prayer before a meal. so i think it is important to be true to our customs and beliefs at these dinners. >> amen. thank you. >> islam wouldn't be where it was today if it wasn't for a strong, successful woman. my faith plays into my dinners because i'm showing people what american-muslims are like, what islam is like, to be hospitable and generous and kind to our neighbors. >> so why do muslim women choose to wear hijab?
8:23 am
>> i think a consistent question at every single dinner has been about hijab and what it means for muslim women who cover. it empowers me, it really does. it has people get to know me based on my personality, not on my looks and i love it. it's my flag for my religion and it's beautiful. >> do you think now is like a good time for reform? >> why do you think that has occurred? >> i think we're okay with being vulnerable and put ourselves in a position to be asked difficult questions. >> islam is not believing in imposing anything on anyone. >> hussein and i are two american-muslims, we are not practicing scholars, we are just people who practice a different faith. >> it was great. >> i don't regret coming at all. i feel like i need to keep in touch with these people. >> i think people after they leave the dinner feel more comfortable in talking about things that are sometimes taboo.
8:24 am
>> thank you so much for coming. >> reporter: saab and her husband have hosted 12 dinners so far. >> we have gotten invitations back to their homes and to their places of worship. so i think it's a lifelong friendship because we shared something so special. thank you so much. >> this is for you. >> reporter: by bringing neighbors of different faiths together, the saabs hope to share more understanding of each other. >> i think it's absolutely incredible to know that we can make even the smallest difference in our own little community. i want people to know that american-muslims are just like all other americans. we're in this together. and i think the success of this country and our world is in our unity and diversity and embracing that. >> so as you can see, amanda and hussein, even give their guests desserts as they leave. the dinners have been such a success, they are now working on a "how-to guide" to help others
8:25 am
host dinners fo. food always brings us together. >> it's a great way to ask questions you may not be able to ask otherwise. >> very approachable in that sentiment. >> and they have become friends! >> if you're there and curious and wanting to make that connection, that sets a nice tone to it. and like you said, food. food is good. >> food, music, occasionally a little alcohol. there are very few things that bring us together. >> let me get this right, now you're doing food bringing people together over faith. earlier it was beer. >> can you see a theme has emerged? >> there's a thread here. a good segway because we have a tease for tomorrow's, which is two friends what are really defying their limitations. and look at this, taking their faith to new heights. very cool. still ahead, danny devito. that's all you need to say. danny devito, live in our studio. but first, on a i'm ...

8:34 am
take a look. >> you're looking like a maniac. >> this is bad for america, bad for jews, it is bad for everybody. >> that's right. i want to help. >> how can you help? this is a political war going on 7,000 miles from here. they are going to use this story to take him down. there's nothing you can do about it. don't get involved. it's too big. >> richard, good morning, good to have you here. >> you, too. >> it's really good. >> i said, he hasn't seen the movie. no, it's okay, trux st me, it's really good. >> i understand. i got to meet the director a second ago. >> joseph is getting very shy. joseph, are you here? joseph! >> he doesn't want to come out. he doesn't want to be seen with you. >> no makeup, no nothing. he's got the leather jacket on. joseph! >> you said to him when he first came to you about this project that if you were directing this movie, you would not cast you in it. >> absolutely not. >> why not? >> no, because it was -- you
8:35 am
haven't seen the movie yet. but when you see the movie, you'll know why. he's a shlub. his instincts are completely different than mine. so really, it went from starting from ground zero to build this character. >> as a matter of fact, they took steps to not make you as handsome as you normally are. and i thank you for showing up in character. that's really good of you. what did they do to you? >> well, it was they, it sounds like there was a team of they getting hysterical all over me, but it was -- you know, joseph wanted to change -- he spent a day, which is usually what i do, i give people a day to play and do whatever they want. and then in the end, i decide what i'm going to do. he said, okay, i want a day to play. so he put funny eyebrows on me and hairline back and mustache. it all looked ridiculous to me. and i had seen, i had just come back from india, and a friend of
8:36 am
mine, a wonderful indian actor, he had a poster of his latest movie. and it was a goofy movie. and the poster had his ears sticking out. and i said, all this is ridiculous. what about this? and he went -- that's it. so you'll see in the movie that my ears are a little more protruding than in real life. >> well, we talk about a fixer, we use fixers in our business, as the people who kind of grease the wheels and they connect people. is that the right definition for this guy? >> yeah, but he's not really a fixer, he's a maha. >> explain what that means. >> he wants to be a fixer, basically. >> he's a wannabe. >> fixer sounds like he actually does it. but this guy is on the periphery of things that are happening. people who have money or power or influence or whatever, i know you have no one like that around you. >> i was going to ask you, do you have a norman in your life? >> there are no normans in this life. >> no.
8:37 am
>> everyone is looking at each other. >> is he a pathetic character? >> you know, there's a -- no, he's not pathetic. i don't find him pathetic. i find him very human. and i find his situations -- we continually see him being humiliated. and joseph has allowed us to feel that with him at certain times in this movie. i think there's a chaplain-esque quality to this guy. he's kind-hearted and everything he says is a complete untruth or half untruth. but he believes his own fantasies of these schemes that ultimately -- he does believe it's going to make everyone happy. >> well, as you say, it is really good, take my word for it. >> joseph, come here, quick. >> just come in for a shot, joseph. he's not going to let you go without coming in. >> and i'm going to dominate the rest of the show until you do. >> you were looking for norman so -- >> yo receive wrote and directed this wonderful movie i'm very
8:38 am
proud of. >> thank you, richard. okay, i can go now, right? >> congratulations. i read something and sometimes these aren't right, that you are starting to choose roles based a lot on can they keep you home and close to family here in new york, is that true? >> we talked about this before, the last time i saw you. i have a 17-year-old son and figure i have, maybe another year or two that i'm going to be really in his life. and so, i don't know, four or five, six years ago -- >> do you turn away a lot of things that require travel? >> i say, i like the script, i like you guys, if you can do it in new york, i'll do it. but they say, it costs too much. then i say, then i'll basically do it for free. then they go, oh, okay. >> you're coming back in a couple weeks. >> i have another movie. this is hysterical, two movies and another one in the parking lot. >> and embarrassment of riches. >> i apologize to everyone. >> "norman" opens in theaters

8:43 am
>> it's capable of interpretation, too. because i had heard that, in some incarnations of this play, some stagings of it, your character went in more of a darker direction. you don't exactly do it that way. >> no, i keep it -- solomon is 90 years old. he's seen it all. he's -- he comes into this situation, and there's conflict in the family. but really what i want is the furniture. i mean, i'm on a furniture deal, i'm trying to get a good price. it's interesting, ironic, i've been away from the stage for so long, i mean, i did "the sunshine boys" in london, but it brought, you know, solomon's been out of business for a while, too. so it's kind of -- because he comes back to it. he's brought -- he's all of a sudden taking on such a load. >> is he a crook? >> no, no. >> is he trying to dwindle men out of money at all? >> no, he's trying to make a great deal. and he makes -- he's trying to make a great deal. you come see the show, he makes
8:44 am
a pretty good deal. >> the reviews say you're a scene stealer. and there's a scene, in particular, featuring eggs. >> well, this is in the play. arthur miller is -- the idea is i'm 90 years old, he gives me an argument and i can't -- i say, okay, i'm going to buy the furniture. and then -- he says, i'll give you a good price. i sit down and i take out an egg out of my bag. >> out of your briefcase, you peel it right there, okay. you peel it and then you jam it into your mouth. >> we may just have a couple of eggs right here. >> we have done our calculations. you eat an egg a show, eight shows a week, you have already eaten more than 60 eggs. and if you stay, the desired amount of time, you'll eat something like 120 eggs. >> 120 eggs. >> do you like eggs? >> i love eggs. see, in the beginning, just before rehearsal, i usually get up in the morning and make a couple scrambled eggs. so i just stopped doing that now. even when i go to work.
8:45 am
it is really cool. >> you're on lipitor. >> you need to support the show and the sponsors. but it's an interesting thing, you want to see it? >> we do. >> well, the egg is in the briefcase. so we have a paper bag here. and what i do is, i have a cane, so i take the -- i take it and crack it on stage. and now, by now, the audience is like, beside themselves, because they don't know what to think. and mark doesn't know, mark rufulo, who is wonderful in the play, let's see. >> i hear he cracks up every night. >> so i peel it, right? and then, he says, i can't remember the dialogue of what he says, and i say, well, you give me such an argument that i got hungry. so then i start eating. and this is all. i said, what do you want me to do, stop? we have dialogue.
8:46 am
and then -- there wouldn't be a little salt, would there? and, you know, this is a morning show, so i haven't had my egg yet. >> you can have another one today, though. >> yeah. what is today, thursday? yesterday i had two. wednesday was a bad day. long story short, that's what happens. and we, you know, and -- it is very interesting. it is very interesting on stage, i spit through it. a couple nights ago, he had a piece of white on his cheek that he couldn't get off. the audience likes that because it's like -- you can't, you know, milk it, because otherwise, this is arthur miller. you have to get back into the meat of the play. but, you know, it is really -- serious stuff. but try eating and talking.
8:47 am
why don't you try it? >> it's hard. >> you get back into it. sometimes, like, i got -- one night i got a piece of -- sometimes you can't get it all off and you have to keep the play going. i got one stuck, choked for ten minutes, the audience loved it. broadway history. >> broadway is a better place because of you. it's great to have you on. >> thank you very much. >> danny, good to see you. we want to tell people "the price" runs through may 14th. check him out, he'll have eaten 120 eggs here at the american airlines theater here in new york. coming up next, from fashion to beauty products, the season's best of the best according to our style squad. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

9:50 am
campbell. this is a flavor i come to enjoy. maple, pineapple juice, cola, orange zest, just shave off the orange bit there, oil, dijon, we have some cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and some red pepper flake. >> easy enough. >> so the first thing i'm going to do, if i may, lightly score the skin. make a diamond pattern. don't go too far, but what that is going to do is create beautiful little bits for the texture on the surface. >> that's why they do that. >> right. you can even make a small hole. and these are the cloves, just puncture and put them -- >> all along the section there. >> right. you can punch it right through the surface of the skin of the turkey. then we're going to make the sauce. we basically put the turkey inside aluminum foil. >> it is still a ham, right? >> did you say turkey? >> sorry. that's coming through. we have maple syrup. we're going to put in our cola. >> colan.
9:51 am
>> exactly right. >> it smells sweet. >> there are no brand names in this cooking segment. pineapple. a little bit of some sugar. we have our dijon mustard. exactly right. >> can i be honest with you, did you know about cola on a ham? >> it makes sense with the sweet in it. >> it does. and also the carbonation. it helps to break the stuff down. >> that's what i didn't know. >> carb what? no carbs. we have the dry spices, we have the zest. we'll mix this in, let it all incorporate. >> it smells so good. >> i'm glad you like it. then we'll reduce it, let it come to a much more syrupy consistency, kind of like that. exactly like that. so we're going to glaze the ham like this and put it back in the oven for its final 20 minutes. >> how long do you put it in? >> initially, roughly, you want to think about 15 minutes a pound. you can actually go up to an
9:52 am
hour a pound depending on the bone-in and the size. but always trust your butcher when it comes to the cooking time. it can be an hour per pound. then you'll have your turkey leftover. this is my -- quick -- still ham. i'm rejecting the ham. my body is rejecting the ham. >> so really quickly, we have, i don't know what we have here. >> this is my version of easy pasta grecia. we have fava beans, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, olive oil. so we have our ham bits that have crisped up in the pan. we're going to actually just move them. we want to keep the lovely brown stuff. and then we'll just remove them from the heat. just put them all right here in front because we want to actually keep the ham fat in the bottom. exactly. >> put the other stuff in the -- >> exactly right. so in our pasta, right to the ham. a little bit of the pasta starchy water. >> you do. >> not as sloppily as i added

it. it's okay. it's the "today" show. >> we have 25 seconds. how do we make this? >> we bring the onions up to temperature. honestly, that's the nice thing about this. there's garlic, onions, mix it all together. and then finally, it's sort of the white verse of the pasta, ham, taste of romano. >> isn't that great? >> thank you so much. >> no worries. >> go to to get this recipe and so many more. but first, this is "today" on nbc. >> it's ham.
